Join an apprenticeship ASAP. Electrician, HVAC, Plumbing. Youre young.

Get paid very well while you learn. And you can tell any one who wants to make you get the jab for a job to fuck off.

Take your butt to the smallest carpentry/paint company in area and apply. Or the smallest hvac company. Or the smallest plumbing company. Or the even a tree service company.

Or come to free America down south. And live a normal life here.

This is very good advice. Start small, then, in time, work upwards to something bigger. It does take time, but it's worth it.

Good advice, if you can follow it.

Do some research, ideally you can get a job lined up before moving, but in a better area you'll have a lot more opportunity.

Well it sounds like you don’t really want much help buddy.
Lots of people offering good advice but you keep saying no, or that won’t work.

  1. move.
  2. get away from your family.

This job listing in Montana construction on LinkedIn literally says "Skills are not necessary, we will teach you"

https://www.linkedin.com/jobs/view/2769983635/

Here are 150+ construction jobs in Montana

https://www.ziprecruiter.com/Jobs/Construction/-in-Bozeman,Montana

I have a friend trying to get a house built in Montana but the construction companies are telling him the earliest they can get started is 2024 because that's how long the line is. They are so busy and there aren't enough workers.

I cant afford to move.

You don't have a job, and (I assume) no income. How can you afford not to move?

It's really weird that you can't find anything. Around here they are literally desperate for anyone. Like if you have two arms and legs they will take you. There are places with tons of jobs right now. Some businesses have shut down because they simply can't hire enough people. If you are in a bad area, then move to a better one.

I can't imagine moving would be that expensive for a 19 year old. Sell all your stuff and jump in your car and go.

Fair. Hard to move w no transport and no way to do an initial deposit on a place to live unless you luck out having friends/family who will let you couch surf til you can save up enough to move from their couch. At 19 you won't have much in the way of references or rental history - but you should be able to land a rented room in a house and a basic job with some planning.

First off, don't get tied up with unions. They're not going to hire you anyway unless someone in the union knows you and pulls some strings for you. Unions help union leadership and upper management in big businesses/big govt.

You will just be a pawn to them. They'll take your dues and give them to the democrat party while using you as leverage in their negotiations.

Every body wants 3-5 years experience for entry jobs.

Apply to those jobs anyway. Any company today that sticks to that policy is out of touch. Many just have the requirement up there as a buffer, so ignore it and apply.

Apply at places that don't have help wanted signs as well, and do it in person.

What you need right now is income, so don't be uppity about what type of job you're willing to take. Work in a convenience store, work for cash for the guy that mows yards in your neighborhood, stock shelves overnight in a local grocery store.

If you're near a river or an ocean find some dock or boat work.

Ask the people already working there about the atmosphere, if they require masks or the vax, etc.

I had an opportunity to get into the plumbers union, entering as a journeyman, about $45 an hour. I turned it down because you had to contribute to the democrat party. I started my own shop instead. $45 is chump change now.

Sounds like you live in some tiny blue town with few opportunities. Get out of there. I live in a blue city, but there's 1000's of jobs, no vaxx. You're 19, don't get that vaxx if you ever want to have children!!!

Agreed. Start small. I worked at about his age as a helper for a carpenter who built decks and patio covers. This was my entry into construction. I've been a Site Superintendent for a large commercial GC for the past 7 years. Make awesome money with banker's hours. If I ever lose my job there, I can always fall back and support myself, wife, and kids with my tools again. A trade is important to learn, as you will ALWAYS HAVE WORK. GOOD luck to the OP.

Tomorrow, go around your town and look for a contractor who is working the day after Thanksgiving. That is a good indication that there is work in that field. Go up and ask if he needs an entry-level grunt.

Because someone who is out looking for work the day after Thanksgiving instead of sleeping it off on the couch is someone who is motivated and will show up for work.

And, if he has nothing, ask if he knows someone who needs an entry-level grunt.

Take it from there.

Much as YouTube is “enemy territory” you can learn a lot of practical skills from knowledgeable people —— I learned the basics of how to run a screw cutting lathe last year, and finally bought one in September! And that was the first I had ever touched one.

Today would be a good day to binge-watch videos on practical skills.

Pick something, search for it with the phrase “How To Use a ______” or “How to run a _____” and immerse yourself for a couple hours!

KilroyJCNJ 18 points ago +18 / -0

When you start out by walking up to a contractor asking to be a low-level grunt, you will not be handing in a resume to him. You will verbally state to him,” I am looking for work because I have not yet had a job, and I need to earn some experience and a bit of money, too.”

Then, you work hard and do your best so that, three months later, you can NOW write up a resume that includes “WORK EXPERIENCE: Joe Blow’s Contracting Service” and also be able to use him as a reference (as long as you did a good job!).

You do not really have anything to put on a resume, so don’t bother right now.

Right now, you have a job: find a job, any job, and START building a resume and getting experience.

And you may have to start “off the books”, but do not stay that way unless the money is REALLY good!

Ever heard the phrase fake it until you make it?

You need to stop focusing on the negative possibilities.. stop making excuses! This is merely a setback and only a positive attitude/outlook is going to get you anywhere. I'm currently in school and in my 30's, shit sucks BUT I know the payoff is all going to be worth it.

Hard times ahead but need to change your mindset or you will go nowhere.

What I am going to say please consider tough love. it's something that is missing from your age group, along with critical thinking and common sense skills.

It's easy to find excuses to not do things....

I lived in my car when I was your age. Didn't have a mom and my dad use to beat the shit out of me. There is a lot of people who have been given the shit end of the stick when it comes to the deck of cards we call life. You are young and should be invincible at this age, dig deep and get at life, even if that means you need to learn how to ride the dog to some new place (The dog = greyhound). Go couch surf at a friend or relative out of state. Like I said, I lived out of a car when I was younger than you, left the house at 16.

Learn to find your inner Fuck You. Use that as energy to prove others wrong, It's a powerful force, use the force OP, it is there to help guide you.

You can do this, but you need to cut the strings from the family and prove to yourself, yes yourself first, then to your family that you can do this. It's easy to find excuses not to, this is what separates the men from the boys. (insert San Fransisco joke here) You got this, go write your own chapter, your parents will learn to respect it and it will give you your own independence.

The gentlemen (assumption) who posted for you to go look for contractors working tomorrow, spoke words of wisdom and provided a great insight, take these gems and learn. Go knock on doors and even offer to work for free to prove yourself. Keep going back, be assertive and follow through. Ask for apprenticeships. Learn to be the best FNG (F&cking New Guy) that you can be. They'll ride your ass until you earn your strips, but that is a right of passage.

You got this - go start the next chapter in your life!

P.S. If they were not giving the vax, I would also suggest enlisting. It's a great start for a young person to get grounded and learn how to embrace the suck.

If you don't mind cutting ties where you are at and coming to FL, I teach at our locals apprenticeship program and could see about finding you a spot even though the year started. Its a long shot being this close to December but if you are here next year I can almost guarantee you a spot. Most of our local is not vaccinated and is opposed to being vaccinated so many of our contractors have had to just deal with it. The union will place you in a job, comes with 2 pensions, heath insurance is self funded through the union so you dont see it come off the check, great pay (for FL anyway), usually youll end up with a company vehicle, tools, phone, etc. Let me know, I teach HVAC but we offer plumbing, pipefitting, and welding as well.

For anyone here who likes to shit on unions, FL is a right to work state so everything bad you have ever heard about unions doesn't apply to us so get fucked retards.

FL is a right to work state so everything bad you have ever heard about unions doesn't apply to us so get fucked retards.

I'm not going to argue with you man, but since you have the username that you do I would suggest reading "The Law" by Bastiat, as well as "Economics in One Lesson" by Henry Hazlitt.

And if you can tell me that the principles and criticisms in those works don't apply to florida unions in any way then I'll be impressed.

1
f_bastiat 1 point ago +1 / -0

The Law was required reading when I went to college almost 20 years ago (how times have changed), I even have a childrens version of it my wife bought for the kids a couple years ago.

That being said, our union is based around being better trained than non union employees, and doing things ourselves to cut out middle men where we can (like a self funded heath care and pensions). Its nothing like up north where they have monopoly control over trades and contracts which I completely disagree with.

It is completely voluntary to work in a union for any trade here in FL, you could even go through our 5 year program, becoming a badass tech, and go work non-union if you so desire, even though that would be pretty shitty. Contractors voluntarily hire us union workers, they hire us because we receive better training in a longer apprenticeship program, and they have the ability to call the union when they need people rather than risk getting a shit tier tradesman off the street that paid for some 6 month school with no hands on training.

We use our union to negotiate our raises and benefits voluntarily with the contractors, so we know exactly what we are getting into, its a completely voluntary contract between the contractor and the union, and between the union and us.

2
BasicKekinomics 2 points ago +2 / -0

That's interesting and I'll take your word for it. Maybe your union is an exception to the rule.

I would add that FL being a right to work state does not preclude unions from doing traditional union things, as I live in a right to work state and have lived in another and I've seen the shitty side of unions in both states.

Just for example, we had a UPS delivery driver that was bottom of the barrel. Worse than a bad post office employee. Didn't deliver when he felt like it, didn't come by to pick up, not trustworthy, etc.

One day he was fired and we all breathed a sigh of relief. Union had him back on the job the next day.

A local factory that made headlamps for cars was unionized and they immediately started union tactics like letting the assembly line continue to run while they let the headlamps fall off on the floor and smash one after another until they got their way.

Factory closed up shop, fired the employees, and moved out of state. I don't blame them.

So if your union is as upstanding as you say then it is because of the quality of the individuals in your union rather than right to work legislation that makes it so.

Are you forced to contribute to the democrat party? That was a deal breaker for me.

1
f_bastiat 1 point ago +1 / -0

We aren't forced, but there is a fund members can pay into which almost certainly always goes to the democrat party. Not a fan of that myself, but thats the politics from above. Thats the only thing I dislike but I'm not willing to give up pensions and healthcare over something trivial like that, when I could end up at a non union place where the CEO or President donates to BLM and other bullshit. Nothing is going to be exactly what we want, pick and choose your battles.

The local I was looking at explicitly required contributions to the democrat party. Deal breaker. Actually, best thing that ever happened, because I went on to open my own shop.

^^ THIS - great offer and a solid future. People lost sight on the trades. It's a solid way to gain employment and skills. Learn the ropes, pay your dues and branch out on your own, with your own business and dont forget what others did to help get you where you are at, repay that help by paying it forward, helping others who walked in your shoes.

Just applied at an HVAC place with zero experience. They hired me because of my attitude. 4 months later, I have a $2/hr raise, certified in gas piping, and can do most, if not all, minor and major home repairs. HVAC, plumbing, electrical. Gas, electric, propane.

You're not alone in feeling that way. You're a brave, strong-minded young man, and that will stand you in good stead. And you have not been jabbed, so that means you will have a long healthy life. Keep moving forwards and try not to look back too much is my advice. Oh, and don't let the bastards grind you down!

And keep posting on Patriots.win, there's so many good people here that will give you support and compassion just when you most need it the most. It's very easy to feel lonely at this moment in time, and positive feedback from fellow Patriots will make you feel better, not so isolated, about things, I hope.

I'm sorry if that's not a very definitive answer. From everything I've been reading/researching, it's not looking good.

Patriots.win has been an excellent source of info on the 'vaccines': use the search engine and do a little digging...

In the mean time, I suggest you pray for your family, and keep on loving them, as I'm sure you do. Again, I'm sorry I can't give you a more positive answer, but I think it would be wrong for me to give you false hope. Things are not looking good for those who have been injected with the MRNA shit.

This may sound a bit callous towards your family, but I think it is time you put yourself first and learn, at your young age, that the most important thing to do in life is to survive.

It's a tough one. From my experience it might be best if you have a period of time away from the whole family situation, wait for the dust to settle and then revisit, if you are in the right frame of mind.

And, frankly, if anyone doesn't want to be spotted with you, for no matter what reason, why on earth would you want to be anywhere near them? You have your own self-respect to think about here, never lose sight of that. :)

You should feel let down by your parents, not your country. Blaming the country is what worthless socialist kids do. They get mad they didn’t get a fair shake and blah blah. The country has served your family well it seems, and your parents specifically have used that abundance and success to become the kind of people that would turn their backs on their own child for the sake of optics.

Your parents have failed you. Not your country. Your ire should be directed accordingly.

You need to build up your own empire and then when they are old and helpless you throw them in a shitty nursing home and never come visit.

There is an app called handy. You can book jobs for any type of work through the app. I did it for plumbing jobs when I was building my business. They have tons of jobs doing things like cleaning up yards, cleaning gutters, putting batteries in smoke detectors, every day labor shit. The jobs pay pretty well, and you can get the money in your bank account immediately after you finish the job. A smart, motivated person can make big money as a independent handyman.

I am in the same situation. One month's rent left which will probably be spent in the dark with no internet or phone and food from the Food Bank, provided that they don't implement mandatory vax pass to enter.. I thank God for what I have.

Be strong. Meet your family on zoom...assuming they'll make time for you.
Hopefully they will, since within the next year there is high probability one will fall ill from the vaccine and they'll call upon you to help. Pray the elastic snaps or begins to contract soon and intact humans (those with human DNA, the only ones who qualify for human rights) become a thing again.

The current vax has no microchip, but that will come soon, I'm sure.
Soon I hope you'll see people will need to pay for their vaccine boosters out of pocket and that will help the resistance. Maybe just having human sperm will be the next measure of desirability.

I dont want to meet them in zoom if they dont want me for being unpoisoned i will never be around them again so it doesnt matter

They are scared because they have been led astray by false prophets.
If they want to keep in touch, let them do so.
If they do not, then their shunning their own son is on them and they will suffer.

I didnt know the vaccine killed your sperm thats even worst

Misinterpreted. What I mean is (according to the developer of mRNA) the vaccine will in fact change your DNA over time. Probably to the point of being scientifically "not human" but certainly compromise the natural immune system and cause autoimmune disorders - which allow strange illnesses to take hold (eg. lupus, rare cancers, etc.)

So the effect on sperm is the same as the effect on women's ova (eggs)

  • they will produce sickly offspring or make people infertile all together.

That is why I mentioned that "intact human" sperm will become valuable.
If your human DNA is intact because you didn't destroy it with mRNA vaccines, your sperm will have intact human DNA too and be more likely to produce healthy children. Assuming you'd want to bring a kid into this world.

We didn't need fertility clinics before people started being vaccinated against various illnesses. Lots of new illnesses have appeared and were trended in girls and women who took.the HPV virus (which can be effectively protected against by not being a slut, or using condoms)

I would give it to some of the young guys who were struggling.to paraphrase it read: 1) finish high school 2) don't get pregnant or get anyone else pregnant 3) get a job, any job. 4) keep that job until you find a better job 5) that's it.

I think his and your advice is complimentary.

It's heartbreaking to hear your family doing that to you. But you'll be better in the long run.

Do you have any ability to get to a red state? I live in north dakota and we are hiring anyone with a pulse right now. Idk of a manufacturing job anywhere in town that isn't at 20ish/hour.

Another option to avoid homelessness would be to sign on with a trucking company. They can sponsor your cdl and you can do long hauls in a sleeper cab. Should let you see some of the country and scope out a different place to set up while making some good money. Plus they are exempt from mandates for the moment.

Felony or misdemeanor? Most states will issue a cdl even with a felony as long as that felony doesn't have anything to do with driving. So if the weed arrest was intent to sell or dui then you might be effed

Disagree. I can't imagine anything more disgusting than having to sit there, alone in his apartment in a video call, eating McDonald's while his family eats a real Thanksgiving dinner.

They're the lunatics who are punishing him out of spite. He did nothing wrong. He shouldn't be doing things on their terms.

There is not a single human being who will not let you down.

For all have sinned and fall short of the Glory of God and sin always leads to pain and death.

But the Good News is that while we are still sinners God loves us so much he sent his son Jesus to live a perfect life and die a torturous death to provide the way to have a relationship with Him.

God, The Almighty, Who spoke everything into existence loves you that much. He loves you in a way a human can't.

If you confess with your mouth Jesus as Lord, and believe in your heart that God raised Him from the dead, you will be saved.

And not just saved but made a son of God. God becomes your family. God becomes Your Father. A perfect Father that will not let you down.

There is no condemnation for those in Christ Jesus and neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither the present nor the future, nor any powers, neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord.

Accept Christ if you haven't then get a Bible and read and pray every day. Then find a solid church that teaches the Bible. Good churches are rare but they're easier to find these days. They're the ones that don't wear masks.

Know that God the Almighty loves you and so do I pede.

If you want to talk please DM me.

Happy Thanksgiving. I'm grateful for you.

There are many jobs out there. I talked to a kid your age that oversees the cremation process. Easy job, I did it in college. You just sit there and get paid well, nobody complains, just the occasional orb. You don't want a woke girlfriend, you want a "Based" girlfriend. Take this time to change you phone number, you didn't lose your family, they lost you. Joe Biden is their son. They have no integrity, they are evil fucking political zealots. If they bring you over a plate of food to make themselves feel better about what they did, dump it right in front of them and don't let them in your home. You have integrity!

Liberty49220 5 points ago +5 / -0

From your other comments, there's a lot more going on in your life than the vax situation with your parents. I had a son in your position (not the overbearing family stuff, but the "bad luck" aspect). Don't lose hope! It took him nearly four years to get on track, but he is doing much better now. Decide on some Jordan Peterson type rules for life that you swear to live by, e.g., no drugs not even pot; no more than four drinks per sitting, exercise outdoors at least three times/week. If you are Christian, pray about joining a youth group and a church that believes in the Bible. (A decent proxy for this is whether they fly a rainbow flag.) There may be a group nearby at a local college. And get a job, any job, as you work this out. Smaller businesses are generally better, even if the pay is a little less. And don't stop praying. God hears you. Good bless you, pede.

First, make your own dinner! Get a bird, spatchcock it, and enjoy.

Next, while others' advice about apprenticeships is good, another avenue is SALES. Learn to sell. Find a car lot and offer to sell cars. Believe me, it's the most valuable skill you will learn AND everyone needs salesmen -- GOOD salesmen.

Chin up, 'Pede! You got this.

And one more thing: please still love your family because they're the only ones you have. In the words of Someone greater than us, "They know not what they do."

Godspeed! You will WIN!

if that's true your anxiety would stop you from ANY job. Grow up and do it. you said you applied for Walmart and McDonalds, but those require the same skills.

There's some great jobs out there for the purebloods, it's a smaller pool though. Upside, they wanna hire us fast because we tend to be the best workers.

The apprenticeship is a GREAT idea, wish I'd done that 20 years ago. You never find the perfect job anyway, at least make good money while getting there. HVAC is always needed, not that hard for smart pedes.

Roadpower 2 points ago +2 / -0

Hmm, this is sounding like a situation that requires some some desperate measures. I think I might be tempted to get a large piece of cardboard and a very thick magic marker to write something appropriate about yourself and then go stand on a busy intersection corner.

So maybe something like:

YOUNG MAN NEED ENTRY LEVEL JOB ASAP

LEADS APPRECIATED*

NO VAXX REQUIREMENT PLEASE

BACKGROUND CHECK OKAY*

ASK FOR CONTACT INFO

PLEASE HELP ME GET WORK*

As you can see that is already too much on the sign, something is going to have to give. Probably start with omitting the leads statement. This has to be short. The * denotes things I would get rid of first.

(You might be tempted to put something like GOD BLESS on the sign but to be honest I would avoid that. In my opinion you want to keep it as politically free as possible and the no vaxx requirement has already obviously infringed in that regard. So the god bless statement may or may not work, I honestly don't know but my general view is to keep things as clean as possible when it comes to business.)

(And yes I know there are going to be people who get upset at the idea that god bless is a political statement. I'm sorry, no offense intended but the reality is that it definitely overlaps into the political arena, whether we like it or not.)

Obviously you need to find good morning commute routes and by morning I mean like 5:30AM forward, afternoon might not work if it is dark out. Even if it is dark in the morning it is still a critical time to be out, for obvious reasons.

Be ready to hand out your contact information, so you probably should set up a simple means to get a hold of you. Since you still have Internet a simple email address may do.

I don't know what it costs to get business cards printed up but I believe that this can be done locally so you can get them immediately. You should probably duplicate what you put on the sign and include the contact info. If you get a super simple email address, it might be possible to put that on the sign as well. But you need to convey the info on the sign that can be read in literally two seconds.

People are commuting and focused on that task. Getting even two seconds from them is a ask.

Best wishes young man.

Oh and PS: You obviously must be clean cut and trim. This is your presentation. Another tip when very hard up for funds is never wear blue jeans. Get black Dickies, these are the best work pants bar none and they give a much more professional look than jeans do, black gives crossover ability. They fit much better and dry much faster when you get them wet.

Jeans are strictly casual wear and frankly they more often than not look bad on a man because they look like a sack instead of slacks.

You are young. Find pure work; it exists. Look on gab for theur nonvax work-board. Don't use drugs, be reliable, gain and show competence. You'll make it. Move far away, if you have to, for the right opportunity.

McDs is Ok. I did Le Madeline in school once (splurged on soup, free bread too). It happens. Don't worry too much about holidays: people who would exclude you never loved you; this is just an early reveal BEFORE they could do realer damage. Find a church group - better than a girlfriend - and get your soul sorted out; screen them -too- for Covidiosy. If the group is reasonable, they should help you with holidays, ongoing.
